A steel beam in the shape of a cross has been taken to St Peter's church in NY city, it was apparently discovered under the rubble after that tragic
day. It is "a new symbol to remind people of the horrors and heroism of that day".
Five years after the September 11 attacks, New Yorkers have a new symbol to remind them of the horrors - and heroism - of that day.
A steel beam in the shape of a cross, left standing in the rubble of the World Trade Centre, has been taken to St Peter's Church in the city.
The 20-ft-tall beam has become a reminder for family, recovery workers and builders.
It was discovered in the smoking ruins two weeks after the September 11, 2001, attacks.

Any opinions on this? I have a couple of questions.
Why now if it was found a couple of weeks after the attack? Would'nt it have been nice to have this symbol helping people during the past 5 years
Whats everyones thoughts on the "perfect cross" shape that it just happened to end up in? Coincidence or manmade? Nice to see the falling debris
from the building just happened to sheer off the beams at exactly the right places. I was led to believe that most of the beams were wrecked beyond
recognition that day, or of course melted into various shapes? Maybe this was the one that got away?
As for the beam itself......is this the only one left? I thought all the evidence was shipped away in crates?
Not too sure what to make of this myself.
